I'm pretty sure you may find this interesting.

Look, I know that one of the bans for blogs is proselytizing. However, I don't exactly know whether this counts as such (so if it is, sorry) and, considering I think this is a really interesting topic, I'm wondering whether you could all pitch in and give me your opinion. (By the way, I'm a Roman Catholic, for those that know me).It's a long video, but I personally find it so interesting I'm seeing it twice out of the wonder it inspires.…See More

About Me:
Hello! My name is Carlos and I joined the site because... well... I like to know the atheists argument.

I'm a Roman Catholic. I was raised so, but I left and, after doing some research, I kind of came back to it.

I love arguing and discussing, but for so long as there is dialogue! Well, for so long as people are hearing each other, I suppose.
Age
19-24
Why are you here?
As I said above, I like to know the atheists side... and I also love arguing and debating! For so long as they allow it in the site and it's in a reasonable way, I suppose...
How did you hear about Think Atheist?
Stumble!

Carlos... I wanted to thank you for being the only Christian on Michael's post who is not being a troll. You are remaining calm and courteous while Reo and Michael are resorting to personal attacks. It is refreshing to find someone who agrees to disagree without deciding to resort to name-calling those who they don't agree with. Thanks

I'm glad you're interested in us! ^_^ You may not like all we have to say, but hang around, because things can get interesting here. Though, please note that if you're here to evangelize, very few [if any] of us will be convinced. So, trying to "bring us to god" is a waste of time. Although we will be happy to engage you in intellectual and polite debate and answer any questions you might have about atheism.
